Hi! this is my first post, so i appreciate any advice you can send my way.
I've been back at work now for 7 weeks (pumping 2x a day and getting 4oz each time).
I have 2 isses:
1. In the past couple of weeks, my 17 week old seems to be increasing his feedings to 6oz. we started supplementing with formula becuase he cries throughout our feedings becuase i don't think i'm producing enough milk and since i'm not with him to exclusively breastfeed him, i can't increase my supply.
2. Starting in January i won't be able to pump at work (i'm an accountant).
i would still like to continue our 5am feeding before work and 7pm bedtime feeding after work. is there a way to "train" my breasts to produce enough milk for these 2 feedings exclusively? is there a way to get my supply up to 6oz for these feedings? i'm afraid that if i cut out my 2 pumping sessions at work too suddenly then my milk will diminish all at once.
THANKS for any advice. happy holidays.
